Stopped here because of the line outside. It was for to go ice cream but I found out there was also inside dining and the wait was not bad. I had a 12" half pound hot dog that was awesome! The ice cream I had for desert was ok but I think I could have made a better choice. I... More

Even a one scoop serving of ice cream is ridiculously big. I could barely finish a third of my sundae. This place would be so much better if it would serve reasonably sized portions. So much goes to waste because it's just impossible to finish those huge servings. Get one sundae to share for three to four people if you... More

I just enjoyed a wonderful lunch at Jaxson's. We were greeted with a bowl of popcorn to munch on while reading their huge menu. Portions were equally huge! I had the pastrami on rye while my dining companions had the wrap and the burger. We shared an order of onion rings which came on a metal airplane and were....you guessed... More

Great ice cream and great decor. Perfect for the family. Huge portions so bring an appetite. Try "the kitchen sink" if you dare.

After many years absence, we stopped at Jaxon's on the way to the Fort Lauderdale Airport on our trip home from the Keys. We weren't disappointed. As always the ice cream is the best and the setting brings back the olden days of real candy store/ice cream parlors. PS don't fill up on the free popcorn before the ice cream... More

This place is a landmark for Broward County/South Florida. I have been going here for over 20 years. One of the owner's family members used to bring gallons of great ice cream to our school. That is when the addiction started. Great homemade ice cream. Dozens of flavors. Located in a very old section of Dania Beach, near the Jai... More

This is my favorite ice cream parlor anywhere. Whenever I am in South Florida I try and make it to Jaxsons for a sundae. Their portions are berry generous so plan to share. Great flavors and tons of toppings.

This place is awesome. We are from Southern California and have NOTHING like this at home. The ice cream is delicious and the place is super cute. The only thing I'd warn about is it is EXPENSIVE. Don't get me wrong, the portions are huge and it is worth it but be prepared to spend about 10 bucks a person... More
